Hui Zhang, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Conviva, will join other digital media executives in discussing video quality and consumer expectations at the 2013 Content Delivery Summit in New York.  The Panel, “Managing OTT Video Quality for Service Providers and Network Operators” will kick off at 10:30 a.m., Monday May 20, 2013. It is a featured event of the Streaming Media East Conference, at The Hilton New York City.

Today, a growing number of consumers expect OTT video to reliably start playing seconds after pressing play and want it to look just as beautiful as video delivered over managed networks. The panel, moderated by Joe Ambeault, Chief Product Officer at Redbox Instant by Verizon, will explore the evolving consumer expectations of OTT video, plus the technologies and operational processes that network operators and service providers will need to implement in order to meet consumer demands.

“I am delighted to join our partners Redbox Instant by Verizon, Level 3 and others for a spirited panel,” said Zhang. “Dan Rayburn has pulled together an impressive group of speakers for his thought-provoking Summit.”

Conviva utilizes viewer-side intelligence to measure the impact of video quality on viewer engagement and then takes preemptive action to prevent quality degradations and improve overall picture resolution for viewers everywhere, for premium content providers around the globe.
